It won't work.  A web application does NOT have access to the local computer to be able to do this.  That is by design to protect the client computer.
What you can do is use you application to save the images and then use your website to upload the images to the server (or the application can do this as well) and then display the photos on your website.  Access to the local computer would be a huge security hole.
